representative steve farley. >> i just want to emphasize it's fine for corporations to be involved in the process. corporations have the right to present their arguments, but they don't have the right to do it secretly. they don't havthrit bby people and not register as lobbyists. they don't have the right to take people away on trips, convince them of it, send them backer and then body has seen what's gone on and how that legislator had gotten that idea and where is it coming from. >> farley has introduced a bill to force legislators to disclose their alec ties, just as the law already requires them to do with any lobbyist. >> all i'm asking in the alec acountability act is to make sure that all of those expenses are reported as if they are lobbying expenses and all those gifts that legislators received are reported as if they're receiving gifts from lobbyists. so the public can find out and make up their own minds about who is influencing what. >> steve farley's bill has gone nowhere. alec, on the other hand, is still everywhere. still hiding in plain sight. watch for it. coming soon to a state
